Package: wnpp Severity: wishlist * Package name : libsrs Version : 1.0.0 rc1 Upstream Author : James Couzens <firstname.lastname@example.org> * URL : http://www.librs.org * License : see below Description : official ANSI C sender rewriting scheme (SRS) library libSRS is an ANSI C implementation of one proposed solution to the SPF ("Sender Policy Framework") forwarding problem. Through the very nature of forwarding SPF checks fail when a forwarder does its intended job because the Email is now literally being forged, or to be more politically correct, "delivered on behalf of" :-). libSRS attempts to implement a solution for this using strong cryptographic HMAC's embedded within the local-part (hence the name "rewriting scheme") to enable messages to change hands and still retain information stored in a secure fashion so as to faciliate the passing of SPF checks when the message does finally arrive at its destination. libSRS is currently in the "Release Client" stage on its way to a STABLE version. Previous to recently, no code was changed since early 2004, and only recently relating to changes in the specification. The development branch of libSRS contains feature enhancements such as an independent hashing algorithm designed to act as an alternative to the reliable but somewhat slow OpenSSL (although to be perfectly honest, OpenSSL is MORE than adequate for this purpose, is better then any hashing implementation I'm ever to likely write, and is readily available everywhere).  to support the method of debugging employed in libSRS the library looses its C/89 compliance to take advantage of Variadic Arguments (__VA_VARARGS__) which are taken from the ISO C/99 C standard. Any stable branch of libSRS will loose the debugging code and reclaim C/89 compliant status.
